2003 Toyota Corolla T-Sport breaking

Recommended Posts

If you've seen my project* thread you may have seen this fine beast.

Bought by me in July to donate it's engine to a MK3 MR2. It passed an MOT and was pressed into use pending it's fate, that is now upon us.

Everything available apart from the engine, box and driveshafts.

Rolling shell available if you're quick

Pics from when I got it, it still looks the same, just a bit dirty.

Wheels are good but tyres aren't great before anyone asks.

Hello! Sorry, been away all day today but will have a look tomorrow and see if I can get your bits off.

The project thread covers lots of old rammel, the MR2 appears about 20 pages in.

 

The black one we originally bought was too good to strip apart so we bought another one to do the conversion on with a more broken engine.

 

Conversion is just starting but it's a well documented thing to do. Can't wait to get it on the road!

Hi Dome , thank you for looking at the bits for me , no rush , totally at your convenience. Message me when you like . I will read the project thread mr2 with interest , I really am surprised about a corolla engine being fitted in a mr 2 , sounds great . Hopefully after reading the thread I will understand why you are doing this conversion . If I have any questions I will post up . Thanks Justin .

Corolla has a 190bhp* vvtli engine while the MR2 only ever got the 130 vvti.

I've seen vvtli mr2s but only as prize cars in Gran Turimso 2!

 

*Toyota were generally optimistic here. 170bhp isn't unusual, even when they were fairly new and being developed by the aftermarket.

Not the biggest possible purchase, but I need a fuel cap if it’s the original one...

 

This I've kept, if you still need it drop me a PM

I did manage to get the fuel flap release but not the A/C button I'm afraid

 

The other bits I've kept if anyone needs them are

 

5x Alloys with legal but not great tyres

4 Calipers

Front and rear lights.

 

If anyone needs anything that went on the shell let me know and I'll pass you my mates details. i'm not sure how long it'll be around though.

      Allegedly "There is an undercurrent going around saying that I simply lurk around AS to buy cheap shitters and sell them on for a profit and that I'm generally just a dodgy character."
       
      Have a read through this and see if that's the case.

      Well, OK, just a few brochures for sale, after having sorted through my pile over Christmas.
       
      The postage price will vary according to weight, so the prices below exclude postage - we'll sort this out in PMs. Obviously, if anyone wants more than one, I'll send them together. All are in excellent condition, with some very minor age related creases.

      Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today.
